only game in town

  • Excerpt: It's a pretty specific and exotic piece of hardware so they can charge a premium. Fortunately it's built like a tank and very reliable. I use it to switch between a hackintosh and a linux box between dual 27" 2560x1440 monitors. There's some very specific issues with power saving on one of the monitors, doesn't seem to send the correct power off signal through the switch which causes the 2nd monitor to power cycle every minute or so.
  • Pros: Comes With Cables, Dual Link Dual Dvi, Reliable
  • Cons: Expensive

  • Summary: Works clean. Lots of configuration options. Quick transitions. Have not used the audio and probably will not so I cannot judge those features.

Impressive Piece of Engineering

  • Summary: The device fits my scenario perfectly. Have a 30" Dell LCD and wanted to toggle between my home desktop and a work laptop. The laptop only had VGA/HDMI out, so had to get a USB 3.0 external video card with DVD-D out. The setup of this unit was easy and the instructions straight forward. You can toggle sources with a keyboard hotkey or pressing the buttons on the front of the unit.

KVMP works as advertised

JD, Amazon
6 March 2014
  • Summary: Recently purchased in Feb 2014. Win 7 Pro & XP SP3 machines. Logitech K120 keyboard and Logitech M500 wired mouse. Two Dell monitors set at 1680 x 1050. 2 USB printers. Set up was straight-forward. Hot key switching is very quick. In the default configuration it did not recognize the added features of the mouse (2 additional programmable buttons and other features).

Worth every penny!!!

  • Excerpt: I was seeking a KVM switch to replace my old one that only supported a single monitor. It took me a while to settle on this one, but I am surely glad I did. The setup of this product is VERY simple because everything comes in one box. I didn't have to worry about getting the right cables in a separate transaction and hoping everything would come in at the same time. I have found the product to do everything the description said it would.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Fast, Reliable

  • Excerpt: The device was very intuitive and easy to setup. It did not take very long to get both systems up and running. And it worked the first time. I would recommend it to anyone hunting for a good KVMP switch.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up

Works great - needed to turn off mouse emulation

Bill Brooks, Amazon
4 January 2014
  • Summary: Like others who have reviewed this, in order to get it working I needed to turn off mouse emulation. I'm glad I had noticed that in the reviews, or I would have spent a lot longer searching for a solution. However, figuring out how to turn it off wasn't straightforward. It's only mentioned once in the manual and is buried in commands for the Hotkey Setting Mode. For others who don't have the patience: Hold down NumLock. Press and release the minus key (-).

Great KVM

Amazon Customer, Amazon
27 November 2013
  • Summary: Works as advertised. I am using Dual Samsung 24" HD monitors. Adapted the Dual Link DVI to HDMI. Very nice setup. Extremely happy with the performance. Only gripe is I cannot get a wireless keyboard and mouse to work with this unit. Tried Microsoft and Logitech, no joy. Other models of the IO gear KVM dual view have worked with the wireless. I can live with it.
